Rukgala feels like a true sanctuary nestled in the jungle.  Perched above the shore of Lake Victoria you are completely surrounded by nature.  This venue has a deeply restorative feeling, and the bright and friendly staff will make your stay here a delight.   Spacious and thoughtfully designed rooms, sweeping mountain vistas, and a stunning yoga shala make this a special place to be.  If you're looking to rest and recharge this is the place.
